    Struggling for conistent efficiency, been sliding for the last half dozen batches. Reminded the guy at the brewshop that I do biab, and this time got 10% better!

    I hate not knowing what I'm getting, and am about to go to a cooler mashtun so will need to keep the crush consistent so I can dial in my gear.

    Been thinking the same thing... cooler mash tun for a year now and I do notice inconsistencies in the crush I get. As well, it would be nice to buy in bulk and just crush up what I need when I need.

    I have the monster mill, and it seems to be a good choice. I got it for the same reason you cite, I was getting bad crushes from the store sometimes and wanted to eliminate that.

    I buy 10 or so specialty malts 5 pounds at a time and at least 1- 50 pound bag of pilsner or 2 row....I will warn you mice love grain, one year I killed at least 20 in my garage...keep it sealed and up off the ground if possible in plastic tubs
